It’s kind of cute, and sad at the same time, that all the famous types at the Emmys last weekend thought that they were bringing HIGH FASHION to Hollywood just because they were wearing millions of dollars worth of diamonds and designer gowns that cost three times as much as a black market kidney. If they had the creativity and sense of style of Bai Ling, they’d know that you only need three things to look like the portrait of a refined lady: $1.99 a yard lace from JoAnn Fabrics and two fake road signs from Party City. You know you’re a genuine fashion vanguard and not a wannabe when you say, “clearance section Party City and JoAnn Fabrics scrap bin,” after a reporter asks you who you’re wearing. Bai knows how to work that road sign skirt too, because with one false move, everybody would’ve gotten a peek of her 2nd Street Tunnel.
The modern-day Coco Chanel wore a homemade lace key bra (it’s the key to the
city titties!) and that Hollywood freeway sign skirt thing to the premiere of The Key at the Arclight in Hollywood last night. Bai Ling isn’t only a fashion genius, but she’s also a marketing genius too, because she was a walking elegant billboard for her own movie. Bai Ling does it all. What an inspiration.
